Domino on 64 bit Windows and ODBC

Hmmm… This is one of those where you simply have to know how it works. On Windows 2003 Server, 64 bit version, there are two OBDC control panels. One for 32 bit data sources and one for 64 bit data sources. Lotus Domino, being a 32 bit application, should use the 32 bit data sources but for some reason that doesn’t work. It also doesn’t work to add the data source to the 64 bit data sources. The problem shows itself by popping a UI error message on the server. If this isn’t enough the agent is also halted without any apparent indication on the server console.

The solution is to add the same data source in both the 32 bit and 64 bit data source control panels. Then it works. Wierd!

  1. Hi I tried your solution is to add the same data source in both the 32 bit and 64 bit data, but it fails to work.

    I have also install the 8.5. fix pack butno luck, what am I doing wrong.

  2. I posted the previous response and missed to tell my config:

    Domino Server 64 bit Installed

    Win 2003 64 Bit installed 

    ODBC 32 and 64 Oracle installed and configured

    Applications failed to load odbc ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
